GRAVEYARD ‘The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls’ – Death Metal That’s Built To Kick Your Ass

GRAVEYARD – Releasing on April 17th, 2012, in North America via Pulverised Records, is this 6 song EP from GRAVEYARD aptly titled: The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls. Barcelona Spain should be extremely proud to boast they are home to this tenacious and talented Death Metal pack. Dark, groove infested and strewn with a raging wall of sound, GRAVEYARD is not a run-of-the-mill Death Metal band that wants to only shock and awe. There are melodic moments aplenty in which guitarists Bastard and SBE impress with their axes.

Yes, Bastard and SBE can shred and riff it out with extremity, they give GRAVEYARD a signature sound, coming across with an astute awareness for branding this band with memorable deadly licks and tones. Damn good players. Julkarn on bass and vocals sounds like one Death Metal dude you never want to consider messing with. Vocally guttural and coming across like a pissed off nest of Black Shield Wasps, Julkarn’s voice is Death Metal personified.

Gusi on drums administers the Death Metal punishment on his kit with both speed and precision and is damn enjoyable to listen to. Nothing intricate with Gusi, just a Death Metal blast of sound that’s authoritative with kick-ass fills. If a Death Metal fan (old or new school) that is hankering for a new album asked me what to pick up, The Altar Of Sculped Skulls would be at the top of my must own list. These members of GRAVEYARD play and sound like the seasoned Metal artists that they undeniably are.

The Altar Of Sculpted Skulls has turned out to be a Death Meal album I can’t listen to just as a “once through”, instead I let these 6 songs play a second, third and fourth time in a row. This band sucks me right into their Death Metal world of sonic brutality. Yeah, GRAVEYARD are so maniacally good and this EP stings my Metal senses so damn savagely. I won’t dispute any claim that has GRAVEYARD labeled as: Death Fucking Metal. Damn right they are. Metal be thy name.
